Hi Luis

I agree to what you said, evaluating doctor A should be able to see all evaluations of other doctors for a specific patient A.

But how about doctor A accessing information about patient B and patient C though he has never been asked to evaluate them. For example keeping him in Health Doctor group gives him access to all the patients information. 

Not that i know the best answer for this but the broader question is 
Should all the patients information and evaluations visiting a health center or hospital be visible to all the doctors of that particular institution ?  OR  Should doctors be allowed to view details of patients evaluated by them ?

You can generate different rules, but in this specific case, the
evaluating doctor should know the clinical history and all prior
evaluations of the patient. The clinical history from a patient is
very important for the physician in order to provide the best care for
the patients and the community.
